Fanny Linnéa




My great-grandmother passed away this morning. She was ill and we were all quite prepared for the worse. But it still came like a shock.

The first picture is from Christmas eve two years ago, she's holding my cat Spöke. Now I miss them both:(
The second picture of her cute crooked fingers is from her 95th birthday last spring, the day she got her nails painted for the first time and asked if it will stay on until her next birthday.

Luckily I went to see her on Tuesday and we looked through a photoalbum for the last time together. She will be so missed.

I'm so sorry for your loss... Being prepared does soften the blow a bit, but it's still a very difficult moment. Hugs!

When people close to you pass away, they are always in your heart, so you think about them when something reminds you of them and then you get a warm loving feeling inside.
Really sweet that you honour her by this post.

fy vad tråkigt. jag förlorade min farmor förra månaden, även det ganska väntat men man saknar dem ju precis lika mycket för det...
ha en fin helg

sandra said...

hejdå linnea. och kram maria. tänk att få dö så gammal och "färdig". att man fått leva ett långt liv och till och med haft barnbarnsbarn, imponerande. vet inte hur det känns för dig, men när min farmor dog för ett par år sedan (efter en lång tids skruttighet), så kändes det som en lättnad att hon äntligen fick dö. en kram till från sandra.

Lisen said...

Oj nejnej vad tråkigt :(
(Med din katt också!) Hoppas du har lugn o ro och får tid att ta hand om dej nu ett tag och tänka på henne. På de båda. Min häst togs bort för 2 år sen, första året blev jag bara lessen av tanken på henne, men numera har det gått över till ett leende faktiskt, hon var så rolig o fin. Hoppas du med kan le åt minnena med dem snart med, även om man såklart får vara ledsen också.

Kram! Fina bilder, fin text :)
